Why do people keep comparing this show to the BBC's Sherlock? They are two different shows, for crying out loud. And as constrained as 42 minutes of American TV are -against the 59 minutes of a one hour show on the Beeb- this show is putting a very good effort forward. Lucy is a GREAT Watson and Jonny Lee is a very capable actor with a great emotional range. They can both convince you of their words and these two are great together. Grow up and stop comparing apples to oranges.

Watched all of them, though it was mostly a way to get my Sherlock fix until the next episode of Sherlock came out. Any fan of Sherlock should watch if they are looking for something other than creeping on Tumblr to do.

Didn't think I would enjoy this show. But it's actually pretty good! Love the tweeeeests and turns in every episode. Keeps you entertained.

if you go back to the very beginning of these comments you might see my comment saying meh to this show. i would like to take that statement back and say that this show is one of these shows that grows on you and kicks you in the pants after the second episode and keeps on doing it episode after episode. i actually really really like this show now. give it a try.

Very different take on Sherlock. Really like it, though not as good as BBC Sherlock. Still eagerly waiting for new season on both

jonny lee miller plays a vulnerable and perceptive Sherlock without the usual cliched mannerisms, its a really good approach - apologies to jeremy brett who is a classic!!

Yes, yes. Sherlock Holmes has been adapted for screen many times over, but expecting us to believe/believing yourself that an adaptation basing on the same idea, at roughly the same time? How does that go? "Yeah, we came up with this show shortly after the worldwide success of the BBC show, which we had to hear about, used the same main idea, but no, this is not a rip off! See, we have a woman Watson and it's in NY. That means it's, like, totally our idea...yeah...our own...idea..." Riiight. Anyway, the CBS version might not be bad(although casting some other actress for Watson would have been prudent), but since it's a slightly damaged calque of the BBC show it is completely pointless. Get your own ideas CBS, 'cause you won't duplicate BBC's better, they're just too good.

It's not that bad. It's definitely not up to par with BBC's Sherlock series, but if you can watch it without comparing the two you might be surprised. I'm at least willing to give it a few episodes before I write it off, as it's one of the few CBS shows that interest me.

Even though Elementary's Sherlock (and Watson as well) is nothing like Conan Doyle's original version and I was disappointed by that at first, I've got to admit I've grown fond of the characters. I think it's currently the best show of its genre.

I enjoyed reading the original Sherlock and loved BBC's Sherlock. Comparably this series is solidly good, just not fantastic. Lucy Liu does a believable job as Watson and I like that they used a woman in this role. It one of the better detective shows out there right now (other shows have run their course & I don't watch them anymore, like the Mentalist). As someone else said this show gives a good Sherlock fix til the next BBC one comes out. Worth watching. 4/5 for entertainment value.
